Contextualising: Leif Gifford’s ‘Contained Explosions’
Leif Gifford for her exist@Metro performance uses a technique called video mapping.
This is a relatively new technique in live video art where projections are mapped to architectural or sculptural structures. Adding audio to the video mapping experience can make the performance like contemporary theatre or being in a live music video. Gifford’s abstractions are well-developed and use drawing as a base, rather than graphic design which is commonly used commercially. As the video mapping software develops so does the artform.
What could you imagine Gifford or yourself doing if you could get access to this?

Here are some links from VICE’s Creator’s project, where the video mapping process was used similary to ‘Contained Explosions’ on cardboard boxes.
